The Next "Big Three" in SF
So the Big Three of science fiction -- Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, and Robert Heinlein -- are all passed away. Who do you think are the next big players in the science fiction world?

I hear a lot about Stephen Baxter, and I can't deny he's got some good stuff, but he's really hit and miss with me. Manifold Space, The Time Ships, and his collaborations with Clarke were all excellent, but I couldn't make it even halfway through Flood or Ring, and while Stone Spring was interesting at first it really had some pacing issues and I couldn't finish it.

Who else is out there making a name for themselves that's worth looking into? My only criteria is that they don't use "quantum" or "nano" as a code word for "magic".

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.
